It has been two years since this little bean slipped peacefully into the world. His birth, like his life, has been defined by inexorable progress all made at his own speed. Mostly far too quick for my liking! This little one who is now not so little and yet very little at the same time. Today some of my lovely friends came together with us to celebrate this special little person. This boy who is, at all times, his own self.
I’ve spent two years in his company and yet this little person is still a mystery to me. So much himself, his mission in life clear to him if not to me. I marvel at his determined progress, the way he flies at things full tilt. His affection, his mental agility as well as his physical feats that thrill and terrify me. His cheeky smile that wins me over every time, his certainty of his importance among us, his place in the world right there. In the centre of our hearts.
Happy Birthday my two years boy. I love you so very much.

Oh, perfection. Bunting, sweets and darling boy!
Lol, it really was a fun party and the birthday boy had a great time running around with a bunch of bigger kids. His idea of heaven! I do love my reusable bunting, makes decorating very easy!
What a lovely party! & that gorgeous icing – is it eggshell blue? & how did you make that colour? – I would like to try to recreate that. He looks like a very happy boy. Happy Birthday!!! Love those two year old boys. Hope you have a wonderful day. love Katie x
Thanks Katie! I actually used Wilton Royal Blue icing colouring but added it to the white royal icing on the tip of a toothpick to get a lovely pale colour. About half a bag of icing sugar with added water got only two or three tiny (pinhead tiny) dots of colour then just mix, mix, mix! I do love pastel colours on a cupcake : )
His expression says it all. Happy Belated Birthday. My oldest is turning 18 in a few days. Where has the time gone?
Happy Birth-day to your family. What sweet photos.
